Blue Rhythm Highway, a new album from Jorge Calderón, is coming soon.

Blue Rhythm Highway is my first record in many years. At the urging of my long-time friend Jackson Browne, I went into his studio to record "Blue City" and "On Mardi Gras Day". Then consequently many other songs to complete this CD.

I've always chosen to ride the blue rhythm highway, a road where the afro-Caribbean sounds of my youth blend with those rolling rhythms that rock the blues and feed on street-bred beats, shaking my soul like a steady moving train.

Rafael has a weathered, fragile survivor's voice that fits his material; lyrics are plainspoken, sometimes to a fault. The strongest tracks are "El Bracero," about the hypocritical legacy of U.S.

Elmore Magazine Review: Joel Rafael - Baladista

An heir to Woody Guthrie's throne, Joel Rafael sings not only of social change and injustice, but of love and loss. Baladista, his ninth and most personal album, speaks more of his own personal history than humanity's transgressions, although he does include "El Bracero," a true tale of unheralded Mexican migrant workers who helped feed our country while American men went off to fight World War II.
